Wrist injuries involving the lunate occur most often in youths involved in high-energy traumas that cause a fall on an outstretched hand (1). Seven percent of all carpus injuries involve the lunate, of which only 3% are classified as volar lunate dislocations (1,2). Because of this injury's rarity, they are often misdiagnosed and may be missed in 25% of cases (3). This can lead to further damage, such as median nerve injury, carpal instability, complex regional syndrome, carpal tunnel syndrome, and post-traumatic arthritis (2,4).

We present two identical twin sarcoidosis patients with carpal tunnel syndrome. A number of factors may cause carpal tunnel syndrome like wrist anatomy, occupation, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, pregnancy and renal failure. Although the above factors do not directly cause carpal tunnel syndrome, they may increase your chances of developing or aggravate median nerve damage as it is in sarcoidosis. Sarcoidosis relevant neuropathy and granulomas may be the primary mechanism of sarcoidosis associated carpal tunnel syndrome. Although rare, carpal tunnel syndrome may be a feature of sarcoidosis that may lead to irreversib...

ConclusionThere was no significant association between the patterns of electronic devices use and CTS symptoms. The high prevalence of CTS symptoms necessitates awareness programs, especially among the young population. Although this work did not prove the association, further studies with confirmatory clinical testing are recommended.

Shri RamNeurology India 2019 67(7):55-61 Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a disease caused by compression of the median nerve passing through the wrist. Patients suffer from severe pain and paresthesis in the median nerve. Compression of the median nerve occurs, with prolonged working on keyboards (computer or laptop or music players) being one of the reasons along with others such as diabetes or rheumatoid arthritis. CTS research holds great promise for the patients as well as doctors for better medical treatment. The study has been carried out with an objective to analyze research progress based on the literature publish...

De Quervain's disease, carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS), and trigger finger (digit) are three common pathological conditions of the hand. They are considered overuse syndromes and occur predominantly in females. The prevalence rate and cause-specific risks of these three tendinopathies have not yet been clarified. Data from 41,871 cases listed in the Taiwan National Health Insurance Research Database (NHIRD) from 2010 to 2014 were analyzed. The prevalence rate of these 3 conditions by age, sex, and the risk factors of female-dominant diseases (e.g., osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis [RA], and tendinopathy), diabetes mellitus,...

We report the genetic and clinical findings in the largest cohort with ML-IIIγ so far: 18 affected individuals from 12 families including 12 patients from India, five from Turkey, and one from the USA. With consanguinity confirmed in eight of 12 families, molecular characterization showed that all affected patients had homozygous pathogenic GNPTG genotypes, underscoring the rarity of the disorder. Unlike ML-IIIαβ, which present with a broader spectrum of severity, the ML-III γ phenotype is milder, with onset in early school age, but nonetheless thus far considered phenotypically not differentiable fr...
